We know that cavity prevention is a never-ending quest. Fortunately, there are many tools we use here at The McHenry Dentist to help fight tooth decay. The obvious ones include brushing, flossing, and regular checkups. Another great way to fight cavities is the application of topical fluoride treatments.
Every day, your teeth’s enamel layer gains and loses minerals. Too much demineralization can lead to weakened teeth and increased cavity risk. Fluoride treatments have two major objectives. First, they make teeth more resistant to plaque and acid attacks. And second, they help teeth remineralize more quickly.
If you have questions about topical fluoride treatments, please ask! Fluoride treatments are a great option for fighting cavities and strengthening teeth. An ounce of prevention really is worth a pound of cure.
